Gun Control Laws - Should they be altered?


While many people believe there should be more gun control and the possibility of banning
guns all together, I believe the gun control laws should not be changed. Although there
are many reasons that may persuade people to choose to ban guns, I believe that there are
several other reasons that lead to all the tragedies with guns in America. Banning guns is
not an answer the gun problem in America, there are a few other things that could be done
to stop gun violence. In this essay I will tell about why I believe gun control laws
should not be changed.


After the many shootings in schools over the past two years, many people believe guns
should be made illegal for civillians to posses or purchase guns. While this may make it
difficult for minors, drug addicts, and people with mental deficiencies to get hold on a
gun, The Constitution allows all citizens to possess arms to defend themselves, their
families', and their property. However if guns were made illegal, there would still be
people who would smuggel guns. If a burgular were to smuggle a gun in to someone's home,
that man or woman should be allowed to posses a gun to defend theirself.


And if guns were illegal, mostly only people who do not abide the law would smuggle them,
leaving all the law-abiding citizens unarmed and more prone to attack with a gun.
